South of the Border Surreality
Mexican artist Salvador Teran's work from the 50s is highly sought after. Just look at this amazing example of inlay which incorporates brass and copper imbedded in malachite. The tableau shows an abstract primitive cave drawing of man hunting gazelle. Wild! This humidor (wooden lined box) goes down as one of the more challenging photo subjects I've attempted to capture. Be sure to click the above shots to expand for better viewing, but this one really needs to be seen and held in person.
